Except "cardiac arrest" is not a cause of death.

According to one pathologist I used to work with, cardiac arrest is the ONLY cause of death. His position was that all other "causes of death" ultimately cause cardiac arrest.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

Breaking News: an as-yet unidentified driver and Donald Trump are northbound on I-95 in a white Ford Bronco. Florida state police are following but maintaining a cautious distance.

Ok, just kidding.

In many states, it specifically says on death certificate forms not to list a manner of dying such as cardiac arrest or respiratory failure for cause of death.

And now we learn that the cause of death is fall.

Ottavio Cinquanta, former International Skating Union president has died, aged 83. He introduced prize money to ISU sanctioned events which led to the current structure of the skating season. He also presided over the figure skating judging scandal at the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics that led to the retirement of the 6.0 judging format.

Tony Dow, Who Played Wally Cleaver on ‘Leave It to Beaver,’ Dies at 77

UPDATE: Here we go again. The New York Times has reported that the statement Dow’s representatives released to Facebook was inaccurate and he is, in fact, still alive. In addition to the Facebook post, Variety ran an obituary after confirming it once again with Dow’s team.

2nd UPDATE: Dow has now officially passed away.

UPDATE ON THE UPDATES: Tony Dow is still dead.
